There are more than 100,000 people in the UK who have Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Furthermore, it is common for people not to find out they have MS until later in life. The first signs of MS often start years before they receive a diagnosis. If you have an MS diagnosis, it will stay with you for life. Sadly, so far, there is no real cure. However, there are Multiple Sclerosis (MS) treatments in London, that can help you to manage your condition and the symptoms that come with it.
What is Multiple Sclerosis (MS)?
Electrical activity happens in everyone’s brain all of the time, and a sudden burst of intense electricity can cause a seizure, and this is known as ‘epileptic activity’. Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that affects the nervous system in the brain and the spinal cord.
It causes problems with balance, vision and muscle movement. Every nerve fibre within the brain and spinal cords has a layer of myelin surrounding it, and this protects the nerves and assists with the electrical signals travelling effectively. When you have MS, the myelin is damaged, and this causes the various MS symptoms.
What Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Treatments in London are available?
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Treatments in London can help sufferers to manage their symptoms. However, there is currently no way to cure MS completely.
Secondary progressive MS and relapsing-remitting MS can often be treated using disease-modifying drugs that can slow the progression of the disease. However, these drugs are not suitable for everyone suffering from MS. Unfortunately; there is currently no Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Treatments in London that can slow the progression of primary progressive MS.
That said, there are ways to relieve the pain and symptoms of MS. A neurologist can help treat MS symptoms in various ways, and by arranging a consultation to discuss your symptoms, they can advise on the best steps for you to take based on your personal needs.
